Charlton winger, Tariqe Fosu is edging closer to leaving the club in favour of a move to League One side, Oxford United according to London News Online.
Fosu struggled for a consistent run in Lee Bowyer’s side last season as the Addicks won promotion back into the Championship.
In total, Fosu made just 14 league starts, scoring twice, which will have come as a disappointment to the winger.
He first moved to The Valley back in 2017 from Reading, where he burst onto the scene with some impressive performances for the Royals.
His first season with the club was impressive, with Fosu scoring seven league goals in 14 league appearances.
But he evidently wasn’t in Lee Bowyer’s plans last season, and fell down the pecking order in the Charlton squad, as they won promotion at Wembley earlier this year.
If Fosu can get back to his best, then Oxford will have a place that can change the course of a game on his own at times, and he’ll be a key member of Karl Robinson’s squad if they land his signature.
Charlton are looking to rebuild ahead of next season, as they adjust to life back in the Championship, although Bowyer has ten first-team players currently in his squad.
I’m not surprised to see him leaving Charlton after a short spell at The Valley.
For one reason or another, Fosu hasn’t featured on a consistent basis, and I think Charlton are making a mistake in allowing him to leave the club.
I remember watching him whilst at Reading, and he looked like a player that could perform to a high standard on a consistent basis in the Championship.
This would be a great signing for Oxford, and it could be the perfect place for Fosu to reignite his career, which has stalled in recent years.
